As reported by news of Ukraine this year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the very cultural awards in Ukraine – Shevchenko Prize. It is still going on the last public presentation of artists. More information is housed here: Palantir. February 10 Shevchenko committee will finalize the winners. They are, in contrast to the previous year will be half, but the reward will increase. Basil Shklyar, writer: "When suddenly told that the fight is canceled, were pressing so if here's a woman refused to you at the last minute and you remain alone with his volition … No, we had no fear. " On the novel 'Black Crow Zalishenets' Basil Shklyar worked for 13 years.
It described the insurgency in Ukrainian twenties of the last century. Now he presents his Shevchenko Committee and is reflected from the critics. Indeed, the ratio of the novel is ambiguous. Some writers consider it a phenomenon, which revives the national memory others – criticized for excessive glorification Ukrainian. Basil Shklyar, writer: "Who can not read with an open mind, take a calculator, and you will see that there is more negative characters – Ukrainian, there's more traitors – Ukrainian.
What they perfect the Jews. " How to evaluate a novel Shklyar – not the only dilemma that appeared today before members of the Committee of Shevchenko. Indeed, before this, the authors have applied more sixty works. In the second round allowed 12. Among the elected – three writers: Paul Volvach, Mr Rutkowski and Basil Shklyar, director Rostislav Derzhipilsky, an opera singer Lydia Zabilyasta and others. But the chance to become the winners are only 5 of them. Ivan Drach, a member of the National Prize. Shevchenko told bad news' is so much Direction was given money – only for five awards. " There is no positive in this Reduction does not see Zhulynsky Nicholas, who spent two years in a row headed by Shevchenko Committee. He believes that the secret ballot, each an expert in nine areas wants to pull the blanket over colleagues. Literati strive noted writers, theater-goers – directors. Then the deserving candidates from other areas may simply not enough votes. Nicholas Zhulynsky, former chairman of the National Prize. Shevchenko: 'I'm afraid to be such a prophet sad, but I'm afraid that more than 2-3 of premiums this year will not be … And it counts, by the way, power, and I am very sad that they want to save it at the Shevchenko Prize 'handed over to the media. Not the number of winners, and quality is taken to raise the prestige of the government the highest state award, opposes Anna Herman. And, unlike last year, the savings are not talking – reward doubled. The funds are already on the account Shevchenko Committee. Anna Herman, Deputy Head of Presidential Administration: "It seems that the size of the Shevchenko Prize may be 260,000 to one winner. But I think that the President will raise this level yet. " That saves power at the Shevchenko Prize, or vice versa – shell out? You can find it. Last year the 10 winners received a 130 thousand hryvnia, then the fifth year will be awarded to 260 thousand. The result in both cases is the same – 1.3 million hryvnia. So now the prize can not do the budget price.
